Hey Mom, You Need a Vacation!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

I don’t know about you, but a vacation sure sounds nice right about now. Like exactly the thing we need to feel rejuvenated, refreshed, and to get our mojo back.

But I know what we always do as moms... we start making excuses and convince ourselves that it’s just easier to NOT go on vacation.

It sounds too expensive, it’s going to be too hard to get away for several days or a week, plus...to be honest...for most of us moms, going on a vacation with little kids is NOT a vacation - it’s a “trip” that’s sometimes way more stressful than just being at home.

Well, my guest today has some things to say about all that.

Angela is a Custom Vacation Designer (which is NOT a travel agent, by the way) and she’s the founder of Wild Hair Travels and the host of the Happy Women Travel More Podcast. Angela is here to help you follow those travel dreams and get the recharge that you need from your mom-life routine.

She's a born and raised Texan, a mom to a sweet little baby boy, and loves independent travel with lots of hiking and nature. With summer right around the corner and vacations on the brain, the timing for this episode couldn’t be more perfect. Let’s dive in!

Here are the questions I had for Angela in this conversation: 

  1. Can you describe for us what a “Custom Vacation Designer” is?
  2. Why do you believe it’s so important to take a vacation, especially for our self care?
  3. For many of us moms, we feel like we’re living from one mundane day to the next. The idea of a “going on vacation” sounds so glamorous, but also out of reach.
  4. What are 2-3 of the most used “logical excuses” that we have in our minds that are keeping us from taking vacations?
  5. How can we work through these excuses?
  6. Talk to us about the idea of “unique travel style”. What do you mean by this and how can we use it to have better vacations? (e.g. Actually being able to experience a true vacation, not just a stressful “trip” with the family.)
  7. It sounds like you love to have active vacations. What are some of the best trips that involve activity (that don’t feel like a forced “chore”)? And if it’s a lying-on-the-beach kind of vacation, what can we do to still be intentional about being healthy on vacation?
